Canine finds the cash drawer

Westford Police just sent us a press release about a break in at the Nashoba Valley Ski Area early this morning.

An alarm called officers to The Outlook restaurant at the ski area about 2:30 a.m.

They arrived to find a glass door at the building’s entrance shattered, a cash register smashed on the floor, and the cash drawer from the register missing. They also found a vehicle in the parking lot, and noticed the car’s hood was still warm.

Surveillance video showed a man breaking into the building and leaving with the cash drawer.

Officer Corey Peladeau was called to the scene with his canine partner Beny, and they tracked a scent through a wooded area and a grassy area on the Nashoba property. A short time later they found David Ward, 27, of Boxboro.

Police said Peladeau also located several items of clothing that were allegedly discarded by Ward, a cash drawer, and the keys to the car that was still parked in the parking lot.

Ward was charged with breaking and entering night, larceny from a building, and malicious destruction of property over $250.

He was released on $500 cash bail and will be arraigned Monday.

I can’t find a listed telephone number for Ward to try to get his side of all this.
